FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a shoe upper showing our new design; and,

FIG. 2 is a left side view in elevation thereof.

The broken lines shown in the figures that are immediately adjacent to the solid line areas represent the bounds of the claim. All other broken lines are directed to environment. The broken lines form no part of the claimed design. The right side, top, bottom, front, and rear views are unnecessary to show the claimed design; accordingly, these views have been omitted.
